an open letter to dreamers

Dear dreamers,

To those who don’t believe in a 12 step program for life. To those who trade comfort for passion. To you who are challenging the way things are “supposed to be”… keep going. Chase after you dream, this unique calling that only you can pursue. The one that is the perfect storm of your skills, experiences, and desire welling up inside of you. Do that… because selfishly, I need you to.

I’m sure that thing are making will be great, HOWEVER, you must realize that the goods you are making, the service you provide, or the art you create is only half of what you offering to this world. It’s the intangible that I crave. The inspiration I extract from watching people dare greatly. The world is starving for it.

As much as you think you are doing this for yourself, you are wrong. You are offering something far more than you will realize to the world around you. It’s not about scale. It’s about being the most authentic you, you can be.

If the weight of it seems too heavy. If you feel you can’t make it through another year, remember that there are others that need you to press on. I need to believe in that others are believing in their dreams more than they are believing in themselves. And this is what gives me the strength to believe in me.

This is my open letter to dreamers. Please share.
